GNOME is a Free Software Open Source project and diverse international community of hundreds of contributors, many of whom are volunteers. Anyone can contribute to and participate in GNOME!
GNOME is designed and developed in the open. Most discussion occurs on public IRC channels. Gitlab is a central place used as version control and issue tracking systems; any software change is reviewed and staged there as well as bug reporting.
In order to keep everything running smoothly, everyone contributing to the project or participating in any way must abide by the Code of Conduct. While productive and respectful debates on topics are encouraged, the project reserves the right to limit anything deemed inappropriate or offensive.

You can use the global GNOME Project to report problems or one of its many sub-components (following the pattern: gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/<subcomponent_name>/issues).
